Le Piat d'Or


aka Dus

Recommended Posts

Joke selection to include Iniesta and Xavi but no Sneijder. Iniesta especially was below his usual standards this year and didn't even play all that well in the WC. Seems scoring the winning goal in the final will get you an automatic selection in this award!

I'll put forward the outlandish theory that using Piat d'Or in the title was, ya know, a joke.

 

 

and I'll put down the outlandish counter theory that you're guilty until proven guilty particularly if the old 'only joking' card is played. :)

Aka Dus started the thread, not Sniffer. There's a vast difference in expectations right there.

 

It's a sh*te joke if that's the case.

 

*shrug* Can't see Jimmy Carr knicking it, that's for sure.

I know what you're saying but it's kinda not the biggest crime in the world

 

Tough crowd.

 

I didn't realise that the award was no longer the preserve of France Football but is now overseen by Fifa. So god only knows who they will pick. Probably Andriy Arshavin.

Xavi is underrated by some (not saying on here - just generally - there was an absurd Daily Mail article last year about the Fifa player of the year ceremony and it was titled "The best players of the world (and Xavi)." :lol: f***wits.

 

He's a positive attacking player who doesn't just rely on sideways / backwards passing and he's got a phenomenal pass completion rate... 90% in the CL final against the Mancs, around 90% throughout the World Cup, and in Barca's match against Real Madrid last month he didn't misplace a single pass and had more than 100 completed passes - which is freakishly good and amounts to around two completed passes a minute while the ball is in play.

 

But then there's Messi, who is averaging a goal a game for Barca over the last two seasons which is even more freakish and ought to win any award going...

Agreed.

 

You can tell from everything the Barca players say about Messi that they are completely in awe of him. Even Xavi refused to compare Messi to any other player because that player would come out of the comparison so badly.
